this is the work that officer chin was too great that it helped us a lot in the work that we do that we feel compelled to recognize him at this time and this is timely because this is her last year of doing this, year end summary for 2012 wrapping up the accident statistics for us. officer chin started with the pd back in 30 plus years ago and the last 15 years or so she worked in the record's room and working with us in getting all the accident statistics, the collision data. and also summarizing the year end fatal and injury collisions and she was kind enough and generous enough to share that data for us and for us that's a big deal because as you know the chp's -- the state wide traffic system because of resource constraints, they've been taking quite a bit of time to turn around the year end summaries for us, so without that information that she is sharing with us, we would have been in big trouble in terms of analyzing particular locations for improvements, so it has been really important for us and we just want to take this opportunity to recognize her before she moves onto other ass

that the products are safe for use on all heritage buildings. and so that's how we've been able to handle our heritage buildings. >> i think most of my experience here in the states is it has more to do with the qualifications -- if it's designated listed historic property, then it tends to shift over to the qualifications have to be somebody that has a certain degree and conservation or that kind of thing. so, it's probably similar. it's some qualification type program. >> alrighty, thank you. i have a question over here. somebody get back here, if i could get you to stand up. your name is frank? >> yes. i've got two questions. one for marty and one for larry. marty, how many officers do you have dedicated to your graffiti program? and also larry, how many painters or staff is in your graffiti abatement program? >> great questions. >> well, i'm the graffiti guy, graffiti abatement guy.

up paint day or two, and then the house look so much nicer after you do that. use blue tape, because it does not use an adhesive residue. you do not want to walk run with a paint pale wondering what needs to be punched up. i asked my wife to go around with tape, right? that works really well. sometimes you see sash cords on these wood frame windows. i brought these weights here with some old courts. you probably have seen these things. if the court breaks, this thing is going to drop. so a lot times in these columns, you hear a huge raveling and great pounding noises. that is mostly these weights banging around in the little box channel, the little wooden boxes there. so if you ever wonder why is it so loud, these guys, hanging around. they are tied on there. it is easy to do to take off the tram and replace the court, but it is not something every homeowner wants to get involved anin. it is straight forward if you're ready to do, but a homeowner might have a hard time making it look good. >> take your roller. >> yes, the roller. a lot of times that painted the sash cord, also. the s
